Shorebirds keep coming

Phil Rusch and I witnessed a nice migration of SB Dows and Least Sands first thing this morning along the CT coast, certainly the greatest number of migrant shorbs I have seen locally this early in the season.

But the real excitement came from Rhode Island today where Carlos Pedro photographed a LITTLE STINT, a first record for the state. A second Ruff also made an appearance at Jamaica Bay, NY.
